Throughout the next two decades, she extended her skills and abilities to Gould Inc., Colt’s Manufacturing Co. and the U.S. Repeating Arms Co. She worked at Kama and GE Corp before returning and finishing out her career as a senior industrial engineer at Colt’s Manufacturing Co. Ms. Colaresi retired in 2011.
